How arnaco jewelry is made
Kaga yubinuki is created by stitching the thin silk thread meticulously in zigzag pattern and fill the surface with layers of colorful silk thread. The possibilities of designs and patterns are limitless as one can create various designs using multiple colors and techniques such as layering and weaving. Some of my works are my originals and some are from the traditional patterns that represents peace and longevities.
The stitching requires precision and patience. In order to make a small piece of silk bead of 1 cm in diameter (the one I usually use for earrings), it typically requires around 170-180 stitches.
Weaving - one of the techniques to create different patterns
